The trails are fairly quiet and secluded but the recent fires destroyed 80-90% of this park and there is virtually zero forest remaining. It's a shame because it will take this place decades to recover.

As Karen said, the map shown here is outdated. This trail goes only as far east as Harmon Rd (creating a smaller loop) and other trails have been rerouted. An accurate, though less detailed, map is published here: http://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/park_maps/pwd_mp_p4505_043l.pdf. Nonetheless, it was a nice hike, shadeless but comfortable in early April. Good to see new pine growth throughout. Saw a variety of birds and only two other hiking parties.

This trail is not open past Harmon Rd on the E end according to park staff (this map shows it open). Did an alternate route for a really nice outing. Lunch stop at Lost Pines Overlook was a breezy place to cool off. Tons of dewberries right on the edges of the trail. Lots of new growth! The smell was awesome!
